Code in the Cloud With Anaconda—for Free!
Feb 07, 2023By Anna Ng
We are thrilled to announce that Anaconda’s cloud-hosted, ready-to-code notebook is now available for free on Anaconda’s cloud platform.
Last Fall, we introduced Anaconda's fully-loaded and ready-to-code cloud notebook as part of Anaconda’s paid subscription plans. Today, we are thrilled to deliver on our mission to empower people with data literacy and announce the free availability of Anaconda’s cloud notebook. Now, truly anyone can break into the world of data science and start coding immediately.
Paid plans on Anaconda’s cloud platform will continue to include greater cloud-hosted, persistent storage (up to 10 GB) and high-compute seconds (up to 4,000 seconds).
Breaking Into Data Science Has Never Been Easier
Forget the days of configuring complex Pythonic instances on your desktop. Anaconda’s cloud notebook offers an effortless data science environment that was built to enable lightweight or on-the-go data science work.
We have preconfigured Jupyter's open-source development interface to deliver instant access to hundreds of the most popular and powerful Anaconda packages in a full-featured Jupyter notebook. So whether you use a Chromebook, Netbook, or your cousin’s hand-me-down, with just an internet connection, you too can easily access high computing power, move and host asset files, and spin up data science projects from anywhere.
Python: A Coding Language That Fits in Your Head
The applications of Python are nearly infinite, and the language itself is beautifully human—readable and iterable. The popularity of Python and the role it plays in data science has become an undeniable force in societies, infrastructures, and the global pursuit of scientific discovery.
Anaconda’s distribution was originally built to power web-enabled, distributed access to core scientific and numerical computing packages. Today Anaconda Distribution is used by over 30 million users around the world, resulting in a staggering amount of creative problem solving. Our users are building solutions for fan controller programs, real-time satellite imagery, and more!
The Jupyter project has kindly curated dozens of sample notebooks. You should check them out!
Whether you’re Python-curious or Python-furious, there’s never been a better time to join in on the Python revolution. Make the switch, sharpen your skills, and start coding immediately to build your purpose-built solutions anywhere you go. With Anaconda's cloud notebook, it’s easier than ever to take advantage of cloud-hosted Python computing. Plus, it’s free! You’ve got nothing to lose. :-)
To get started, head to Anaconda's cloud platform and create an account (if you haven’t already). Then, click “Notebooks” in the top navigation bar to access Anaconda’s cloud-hosted notebook—or enter “nb.anaconda.cloud” in your browser to navigate to the notebook directly. Happy coding!
